Changes in accommodative dynamics with repeated accommodation were studied in three anesthetized rhesus monkeys and two conscious humans. Maximum accommodation was centrally stimulated via the Edinger-Westphal nucleus in monkeys with a 4 s on, 4 s off paradigm (4 x 4) for 17 min, 4 x 1.5 for 27 min and 2 x 1 for 16 min. Humans accommodated repeatedly to visual targets (5 x 5; 5D and 2 x 2; 6D) for 30 min. In all cases, accommodation was sustained throughout. The anesthetized monkeys showed… CONTINUE READING
